I’m not certain what problem you are having.
This works for me in R2016a:
fidi = fopen('Rica Test_1.txt','rt');
Ac = textscan(fidi, '%f%f%f%f%f', 'HeaderLines',1, 'CollectOutput',1);
A = cell2mat(Ac);
The cell2mat call converts the cell array ‘Ac’ to double array ‘A’.

the problem is when you check A{1,1}{1,1} in Matlab2014, i see 860 double. in Matlab 2016a i get only one double.

The ‘A’ matrix in my code is a (860x5) double array. It is not a cell array, so there is no need to use cell indexing with it.
